Minster House was originally built in 1907 by the acclaimed architect Charles Henry Bourne Quennell. A wonderful example of the traditional style and character for which the Arts and Crafts movement is renowned. Coming to the market for the first time in nearly 40 years this family home offers approximately 5900 sqft of well balanced accommodation.

Arranged over three floors, the grand entrance hall provides access to the three principle reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room and utility area. The ground floor also has the added bonus of an annexe. A beautifully crafted and elegant staircase leads to the upper floors; the galleried landing with its striking windows allowing views to the front gives access to five bedrooms, the master bedroom enjoys a generous en suite and marvellous bay window looking out onto the gardens at the rear. The four remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and separate w/c. In addition the third floor provides flexible accommodation comprising kitchenette, bathroom, separate w/c, two further bedrooms and ample eaves storage.

Although the property requires some modernisation, it is full of period charm and character. With a touch of creativity and imagination the house would transform into wonderful family home for many more years to come.

Minster House occupies a plot of just under an acre; the south facing gardens are truly exceptional; with a combination of well stocked flower and shrub borders, mature trees, manicured lawns extending to approximately 200 ft and a koi carp water feature. The patio area is paved with original York flagstones providing a wonderful seating area, a practical greenhouse for keen gardeners and a delightful summer house for those lazy summer evenings.
